Design and Manufacture of Gearing Solutions and Equipment for Oil and Gas Industry With Ikona Gear -- Live on MN1.com

COQUITLAM, BC -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 1, 2007 -- Joe Vosburgh, Executive Vice President of Ikona Gear International, Inc. (OTCBB: IKGI), an innovator in compact, lightweight, gearing systems solutions, will be featured live on Market News First (www.mn1.com) for an exclusive interview with MN1's Saul Albom. The interview is scheduled for Thursday, March 1, 2007 at 4:00 p.m. Central time.

Ikona Gear International, Inc. develops and markets its gearing technology and products such as its single and two speed mud pump drives and draw works to major oil and gas companies in Canada and the U.S. Through its agreement with Magna Drivetrain AG & Co., Ikona's gearing technology has been incorporated into electric parking brake actuators, its first of many automotive applications.

The Ikona gearing technology utilizes a unique patented tooth shape which enables gears to be much smaller, lighter, stronger and more energy efficient while allowing the highest single stage reduction ratio, and zero backlash, than any other gear currently available on the market. In high-ratio applications the Ikona gearing system can replace multiple stage gearing systems with a single stage reduction ratio which reduces manufacturing costs. Ikona has received patents for the gear tooth form in the United States, Canada, Germany, France, Italy, Great Britain and Sweden.

Join Mr. Vosburgh to learn more about the goals of the company, as well as its position in the stock market.
